x86 PAT: fix performance drop for glx, use UC minus for ioremap(), ioremap_nocache() and pci_mmap_page_range()

Use UC_MINUS for ioremap(), ioremap_nocache() instead of strong UC.
Once all the X drivers move to ioremap_wc(), we can go back to strong
UC semantics for ioremap() and ioremap_nocache().

To avoid attribute aliasing issues, pci_mmap_page_range() will also
use UC_MINUS for default non write-combining mapping request.

Next steps:
	a) change all the video drivers using ioremap() or ioremap_nocache()
	   and adding WC MTTR using mttr_add() to ioremap_wc()

	b) for strict usage, we can go back to strong uc semantics
	   for ioremap() and ioremap_nocache() after some grace period for
	   completing step-a.

	c) user level X server needs to use the appropriate method for setting
	   up WC mapping (like using resourceX_wc sysfs file instead of
	   adding MTRR for WC and using /dev/mem or resourceX under /sys)
